“White tea is called the “tea of the Emperors”. The leaves of this white tea are picked in the early morning in the Zheng Huo region in the Chinese province of Fujian. It has a light and mildly sweet taste, a delicate aroma and a clean after-taste.
White tea is produced not by steaming or pan frying the tea leaves, but through a natural withering process which is carefully encouraged by controlling the surrounding temperature and air humidity. As a consequence, white tea is thought to have significantly higher antioxidants than the green or black varieties (and has become very popular because of this). More importantly, this tea has a wonderful flavour."
